[Verse]
           A                    D
I saw her standin' on her front lawn
      A               D
just twirlin' her baton
        G                D
Me and her went for a ride sir
        A                   D
and ten innocent people died


[Verse]
          A                   D
From the town of Lincoln Nebraska
             A               D
with a sawed-off .410 on my lap
                G               D
Through to the badlands of Wyoming
            A                D
I killed everything in my path


[Interlude]
A  D


[Verse]
         A              D
I can't say that I'm sorry
           A             D
for the things that we done
          G              D
At least for a little while sir
        A                   D
me and her we had us some fun


[Verse]
           A                   D
The jury brought in a guilty verdict
         A                         D
and the judge he sentenced me to death
         G              D
Midnight in a prison storeroom
               A                D
with leather straps across my chest


[Verse]
         A                       D
Sheriff when the man pulls that switch sir
     A                  D
and snaps my poor head back
          G              D
You make sure my pretty baby
            A                  D
is sittin' right there on my lap


[Solo]
A  D  A  D


[Verse]
         A                  D
They declared me unfit to live
                     A                D
said into that great void my soul be hurled
                G                    D
They wanted to know why I did what I did
                                A                D
well sir I guess there's just a meanness in this world
